Letter to the House in Support of Making the IRA Charitable Rollover Permanent

July 16, 2014

Letter to the House in support of a bill (H.R. 4619) to permanently extend the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable Rollover, which expired at the end of 2013. The measure was part of a package of five tax bills on charitable giving that make up the Fighting Hunger Incentive Act of 2014 (H.R. 4719).

The IRA provision permits individuals age 70½ and older to donate up to $100,000 from their IRAs and Roth IRAs to public nonprofits, including colleges and universities, without having to count the distributions as taxable income.
